Accomplished people from around the world have led our great association in its over 100-year history. While each international president brings their unique perspective and expertise to Lions Clubs International, there has (and always will be) a single constant that unites all Lions: service. With this as a guide, each president is committed to helping clubs increase their service, and as a result, their impact on our local and global communities.
Our International President
As a Lion for more than 40 years, International President Dr. Jung-Yul Choi leads by example. His career and life have been defined by a passionate work ethic, along with a dedication to bridging differences, connecting people and embracing diversity to create harmony for all.
Greater Good Through Diversity
Lions don’t just serve the world. We represent it. During President Choi’s year, we’ll unite clubs and communities around the world because greater good can only be achieved when we join together as one.
The Many Ways We Serve
President Choi’s programs and initiatives will focus on four key elements of Lions International that are essential to our mission of service.
- Strengthening membership through diversity
- Expanding service impact globally
- Supporting our global foundation, LCIF
- Empowering every Lion as a leader
We Lead by Example
As Lions, our actions and service inspires others. We provide courage and a unique sense of empowerment to our communities and to the world. To do this, we depend on great leadership. And that takes great leadership development for our members.
